Fanfic Telepresence by Sculpture, August 2020
Fanfic Telepresence is a 20 minute documentary configuration of everyday cornucopia, tapes and synthesizer gnarl, conversational fragments, observations, juxtapositions, sensory punchlines, redirected energy, pattern, speculation.
We made this for Channel9319062‘s DREAM APPOLCALYPSE, streamed live 8 September 2020. What you see changes what you hear and what you hear changes what you see. Structure, harmony and discord come and go. It’s a (time) travelogue made in lockdown. Objects and situations lose their original meaning and communicate something else. The music is electromechanical. The pause control of a Uher 4000 tape recorder (Education Authority Unit) sees heavy action. Entities transmit by telepresence, inhabit places, objects and organisms, impersonate themselves.
